I disagree because, almost by definition, the first-person point of
view is incorrigible.
The error you point on is more subtle: it consists to communicate a
first-person truth *as* it was objective. In that case we are lead to
Ptolemaic-like errors.

Now, if comp is assumed we can justify that the belief in a
"substantial-physical" universe, and/or the belief that physics is the
"fundamental" science, are just such Ptolemaic-like mistakes, made at
a much deeper level of explanation though.
